Will bulldozer works on AM3 socket? - Page 3

post #21 of 47
So I guess the question now is how many pins BD cpu's will have, since AM3 didn't even use all of it's pins.

Well yeah, the socket has 942 pins, but we know for fact the cpu has 942 pins? AM3 cpu's only had 938 despite the socket having 3 more.

BD has 941 pins and is set to work on some not all 800 series mobos from company's with unofficial support, not 942 as stated, so it can fit a am3 mobo just not guaranteed to work

It doesn't matter how many pins it has right now,AMD stated they are only officially supporting Bulldozer on the AM3+ socket.
BD will only work if motherboard manufacturers decide to release a BIOS update for 8xx series AM3 motherboards.

Ok, I thought it must if these board makers are releasing bios updates. The latest bios update on my board is from Sept 21st, and it shows(as well as the bios before it) cpu AGESA code update, the one prior to that says AM3+ compatibility. I know AGESA has been a big deal as far as people talking performance and compatibility, and I doubt they would have bothered releasing another bios if the cpu's wouldn't even fit.
